Looks like Flava Flav might be a public enemy once again.
The rapper was arrested in Las Vegas early this morning, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department announced, with charges of assault with a deadly weapon and battery hanging over his head. But the details get weirder: apparently, he committed these crimes again his own fiancee and her 17-year-old son.
LVMPD spokeswoman Laura Meltzer says that a woman made a disturbance call at around 3:30 a.m. to report that she and her fiance entered into a physical altercation, and that the fiance was threatening her son with a knife. The fiance, it turned out, was William Drayton, Jr. – known to Public Enemy fans and VH1 viewers as Flava Flav.
Flav is being held on $23,000 bail and is scheduled to make his first court appearance tomorrow morning.
